This September, the popular Oktoberfest event is returning - this time in the form of a two-day extravaganza.
Patrons are invited to become immersed in an atmosphere created by German music, traditional food, drinks, and entertainment.
What to expect
Event organiser Andy Mehringer says there will be imported German beer, food and games for visitors to enjoy.
“They will get imported German beers, schnapps, wine and food which means pork knuckle, German sausages and there will be a German band playing,” Andy says.
The games include schnitzel eating contests, beer stein sculling, and prizes for Miss and Mr Oktoberfest.
“(To be part of) Mr and Miss Oktoberfest, they have to parade in front of the whole hall, which will be full, and the people vote who is the best dressed,” Andy explains.
Moreton Bay City Council Mayor Peter Flannery will appear to perform the traditional tapping of the first beer barrel.
Redcliffe Oktoberfest will be held in the Webb Hall at Redcliffe Showgrounds on September 29 from 3.30-10pm and on September 30 from 11am-10pm.
It is an 18+ event, which will be hosted by Beam Entertainment. Tickets range from $15.87 to $26.09.
The festival brings people together with hundreds of patrons sharing tables in the elaborate beer hall to enjoy the food and performances.
“It's a great atmosphere,” Andy says.
